Family life here in Kenya continues to be fabulous. Zoe is now 5 1⁄2 years old and Oscar has just turned 4. They are both in the kindergarten section of the Banda School, the school that I attended for 8 years so long ago. How time flies! Zoe thrives in the learning environment and is doing well in the reading/writing and adding departments. One of her outdoor passions is horse riding, so we have duly invested in a pony, a pretty gray called Eclipse. Oscar is also thriving in the school environment and triumphed in both his inaugural sports day events – the egg and spoon race and the flat race for 3 year olds. He also shows great interest in anything crawly and takes great delight in gathering such wildlife and presenting them to his teacher.
